Quinta de São Luiz is part of the famous port house Kopke. They saw great potential in the terroir and the centuries-old vineyards. São Luiz is located in the heart of the Douro region on the left bank of the river between Régua and Pinhão. Due to the construction of the Bagaúste Dam in the 1970s, the water level rose so much that Quinta de São Luiz lost part of its land. To solve this, they bought several Quintas in the region to continue their dream. All with A status and ranging in age from 1972 to 1987. São Luiz currently manages 125 hectares of vineyards. The combination of ultra-modern technology in the winery and our own vineyards guarantee beautiful wines.

The Quinta de São Luiz consists of 30% Arinto, 20% Viosinho, 35% Gouveio, 15% Rabigato. The grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks at a constant temperature between 12 and 14 degrees. This wonderfully fresh Portuguese wine has a fresh light straw yellow color in the glass. Aromas of white fruit and mineral notes on the nose. The taste is elegant and silky soft with a balanced acidity. The aftertaste is lively and aromatic.

FACT: For years the tradition at Quinta de São Luiz was to paint the stone wall white. This piece of history is cherished and that is why the white wall appears on the labels of São Luiz wines. A fusion of the past and contemporary wines.

Vineyard for 2022 Kopke Quinta de São Luiz Colheita Branco

Kopke is the world's oldest port house. This port house was founded in 1638 by Cristiano Köpke. This port house specializes in Tawny port and in particular the old Tawny port (the so-called Colheitas). The Colheita port is lighter than a Vintage port and fits many more occasions and meals than a Vintage port. A Colheita is characterized by the brown / almond color, the smell of roasted nuts, raisins and dried fruit. The older the Colheita, the more complex it becomes. 80% of the port made at Kopke is Tawny port. This port house has Tawny port of more than 100 years old.
